If the iPhone 4G comes to Verizon on June 7th, Will RIM lose their faithful customers?


As should be known by now, Blackberry phones are produced by Research In Motion, (RIM). Right now, the vast majority of RIM smartphone users have Verizon as their carrier. However, with Apple expected to reveal it’s 4G iPhone on June 7th, could a Verizon iPhone carrier option be the death of RIM?

Recent studies into smartphone brand loyalty by Crowd Science have revealed some intriguing statistics.  40% of Blackberry users would prefer the iPhone to the Blackberry for their next smartphone choice! 32% of them also said that they would swap out their phones for Google’s Nexus One, even if it meant changing their carrier to T-Mobile. Interestingly enough, 90% of iPhone users are unwilling to change their smartphone brand…

What does this tell us? I believe that it means RIM would lose an alarming amount of their customers if we were ever to see a Verizon iPhone.

Many people, (myself included), will be very tempted by the idea of owning an iPhone on Verizon.

What about you guys?

Would you trade your blackberry for a Verizon iPhone? Are you planning on changing smartphone brands soon anyway?

If so, leave a comment telling us which smartphone you plan on getting, the carrier, and why you are swapping.
